Ellipsis Marketing is a young, forward-thinking agency for WordPress businesses. WordPress powers 40% of the internet and we support its product and service economy with digital marketing.
We sit at the intersection of digital marketing and the WordPress ecosystem, serving agencies who sell websites to the biggest companies in the world, and product businesses who sell functionality to WordPress users. We help our clients reach millions of users and are helping make the web more powerful and easier to use.
Between us, we have the in-house skills to create marketing strategy and implementation for some of the best WordPress businesses in the market.
As a 100% remote team, we carefully balance collaboration with an environment that enables everyone to do their best work.
We each bring our own strengths and the independence to shape our agency as it grows quickly. It’s an exciting time to join us :)
As our new Senior Sales Administrator, you’ll be responsible for our full inbound sales process, including taking sales calls with clients. You’ll be the first point of contact for inbound leads, and this is an excellent opportunity to own our sales process and have a real impact on a growing small business.
This position can be broken down:
Your main responsibility will be to own the full inbound sales process, from responding to inbound enquiries to closing deals.
Ellipsis’ positioning as a marketing agency for WordPress businesses creates strong inbound demand. You’ll have the opportunity to help these leads understand how Ellipsis can help them, and bring good-fit leads into the business. Our work has a real, rewarding impact on clients’ businesses, and you’ll start that journey with them.
This role will require close collaboration with the client services team to understand leads’ needs, our capacity, and the work to be proposed. You will not be responsible for getting leads or our marketing, but you will need to pass the valuable feedback you receive from leads through to the rest of the team.
Your specific responsibilities will include:
This is a part-time, remote role with flexible hours of 20 hours/week. You’ll need to spread those hours across the week, in order to respond to enquiries within one working day. Most of our leads are located in the US or EU, so you’ll need availability to meet with clients across timezones.
This is our first sales role. Currently, sales work is done by our Managing Director. You’ll be working closely with him to start with to get a deep understanding of the business and our services, and you’ll then start taking over and owning the full process
